Question for the techies


#1161

Can it do the job? Is it a bit of an overkill? Would it be robbed?

Make sure the Video is MP4 and you should be ok


#1163

Sorry for repeating myself, but what about the loop play on the TV?


#1164

Ok so, looks like I need a smart TV with “auto play” and “repeat play” functions from USB. Hard enough to find that in the specs though.

Thanks for the help.

The Ministry of Truth broadcasts ceaselessly to the population via its inescapable network of telescreens. These devices, which pervade all aspects of peoples’ lives, are also capable of monitoring their every word and action.

#1173

Yes,have one for a year or so, without doubt the finest- no comparison


#1174

That’s cheap - instead of buying ould shite every year - it’s without doubt the best android box available
